If AT&T WatchTV is a bit lacking for you, there’s good news. AT&T also owns AT&T TV Now, so you can easily switch over to this beefier service instead and still get Cinemax—although at a noticeably higher price. Still, AT&T TV Now is going to be a far cheaper choice than traditional cable, especially if you want to get Cinemax.

AT&T TV Now Pricing and Packages

AT&T TV Now ranges in price from $50 per month to $135 per month. The cheapest option, the $50 per month “PLUS” package, offers 40+ channels. You can add Cinemax as an add-on for just $11 per month to “PLUS” or to any other AT&T TV Now subscription package.
